In a significant development, the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) has executed f Maqbool Samalani, an informant linked to a recent drone attack on Baloch fighters by the Pakistan Army. The BLA’s spokesman, Jeeyand Baloch, issued a statement detailing the circumstances surrounding Samalani’s apprehension and subsequent execution.
According to the BLA, Samalani confessed to providing equipment to Baloch fighters in the Hanna Orok area two months prior to the drone attack. This equipment, unknown to the fighters, contained an electronic chip that enabled the Pakistan Army to track their movements. Utilizing this intelligence, the Army launched a drone attack on the Baloch fighters. However, the fighters’ security measures thwarted the attack, preventing any casualties.
Samalani’s actions, as revealed in his confession, were deemed treasonous by the Baloch National Court, which subsequently sentenced him to death. The BLA executed the sentence, emphasizing its unwavering commitment to safeguarding the Baloch people and their struggle for independence.
The Baloch people have long sought independence from Pakistan, and the Pakistan Army has responded with a range of oppressive measures, including drone attacks. The BLA’s actions highlight the determination of the Baloch people to resist oppression and achieve their aspirations for independence.
Since 27 March 1948, the Pakistan Army has been oppressing Baloch through daily home raids, disappearances, staged encounters, target killings, torture, humiliation at checkpoints, and kidnappings for ransom. The Pakistan Army is targeting and monitoring Baloch people, and anyone who has the potential to raise questions is either killed or abducted.
